|Low VOC materials. VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. Doesn't sound like something you want permeating the air you breathe, does it? As you've probably guessed, many VOCs can have long-term negative health effects. That's why Landmark uses only certified low-VOC building materials - paint, grout, carpets, pre-finished hardwood, everything. For your health, there's no other option.|
|Hot Water. When hot water doesn't come out hot, it wastes your water and your time. Our tankless hot water heaters produce almost endless hot water. Once the taps are turned, they continually turn out up to five gallons per minute of hot water with no recovery time. That might sound like it takes a lot of energy, but its actually just the opposite. Landmark's tankless heaters are 50% more efficient than the industry-standard hot water tank, saving you huge on your heating bills.|
|Lower bills. You don’t notice energy efficiency until you receive your bill. Your high-efficiency tankless heater generates hot water, while a drain water heat recovery unit recaptures heat from shower water. Energy Star appliances minimize electricity use, while low-flow toilets, shower heads and faucets cut water use while maintaining good pressure.|
|Lower water bills. An average Phoenician uses 100 gallons of water per day (3,000 gallons per month). Landmark uses a number of water-saving devices in our homes that will conserve the amount of fresh water used. These include low-flow, high-efficiency toilets that use only 1.5 gallons per flush, low-flow shower heads with good water pressure and low-flow faucets in the kitchen and baths.|
|Lower electricity bills. Included in our homes are Energy Star® appliances that are about 20% more efficient than non-rated appliances, programmable thermostats that help lower utility costs by lowering A/C while you’re away, and efficient light bulbs that use a fifth of the energy and are longer lasting than incandescents.|
|Trust is good. Warranties are better. The quality of your home depends on the quality of your builder. With over 30 years of home building across North America, we’re one of the most trusted and respected builders. Of course, we back that up with a comprehensive warranty that protects your investment and guarantees our construction. If you have any issue, no matter how small, our after-sales service team will take care of you.|
|Giving back with every closing. With every Landmark Homes USA home closing, we donate to Care Fund. Care Fund keeps families in their homes while they care for their seriously ill or injured child by granting mortgage or rent to the families.|
| To be a major North American housing solutions provider recognized for sustainability and for leading a revolution in the industrialization of housing construction. We believe sustainable building is here to stay.
Landmark's position for becoming a sustainable builder is not based on emotion, but on sound business principles, economics and progressive thinking. It's a responsible and conscious decision we've made to benefit everyone, including our own customers, communities and our planet.
It is the inevitable future path residential builders will follow as resources become more scarce and more expensive to procure.
|Our Founder. Inspired by Landmark founder and CEO, Reza Nasseri, Landmark Group is on a sustainability journey to the forefront of the residential building industry.
Reza believes quality homes are the heart of strong families. Through this core value we create stronger communities that improve our overall quality of life. Landmark's commitment to building sustainable communities focuses on educating, inspiring and motivating homeowners and other builders to make sustainability not just a priority - but a necessity.
If we leave our children a world which cannot sustain itself, then we are not only depriving them of what has been, but also what could have been.

This high performance home is exceptionally energy efficient and features spray foam insulation in the exterior walls supplemented by a layer of rigid insulation on the outside of the sheathing.
